For all you overnighters:
Great deals can be found when booking hotels rooms for the convention. It is off season for most places and a few people have told me they got some bargains. I’ve heard that many people are staying at Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Boston-Peabody: (978) 535-4600. PRICELINE.COM could be your best bet. I am interested in finding out the best deal anyone is able to find. Motel 6 in Danvers :(978) 774-8045 may also be a good choice.
We are in a great and convenient spot located 8 minutes off of route 1 onto route 62 towards Middleton. SAMCON at the Hogan Center is off of route 62 in Danvers across from the police station. There will be signs directing you from there.
